This white linen handkerchief is personalized with an outline of a dog - any breed you'd like - Just leave the breed name (and initials, if you'd like them) at checkout and I'll send you a message with an outline to okay. Have a mutt? That's alright. If you can corral him or her long enough to get a picture of them standing square like in the image above, I can make a silhouette from a clear enough image. The puppy above is a perky schnauzer.

This pocket square is made from 100% Irish handkerchief linen, for a crisp, cool texture that will only get better with use. Linen is stronger, absorbs more water, can withstand higher heat, and lasts longer than cotton, and the Irish weave the finest linen in the world. These handkerchiefs are hand-cut to a generous 13 inches and hemmed with a narrow rolled hem, for a personal touch that extends to the smallest details.

The embroidery, done in any color or shade you choose, consists of stem stitch outlining the dog in detail, for a simple and beautiful statement. Each is embroidered completely by hand - not machine - and, although it takes more skill and more time, the results are worth it.

Please - I love to have a personal relationship with each of my customers. Message me with any additional customization you'd like. Custom requests are welcome! I proudly stock the entire DMC line, so if there's a shade you need to match, just message me and I'll send you a pdf file of all 500 colors, so you can find a shade that works for you.

Care information

Linen handkerchiefs may be washed via delicate cycle in a washing machine (no bleach) or for best results, by hand. Iron hot, with steam, on the backside of the work. Any stitches pushed out of place from the iron can gently be prodded back into place. A cotton or mesh laundry bag will help protect your piece from getting snagged.

Temari should not be washed, just dusted if necessary. If needed, you can wet a cloth in hot water and wring it out quite well, and use that to spot-wash. Temari are made of fibers all the way through, so a wash or soak would mean that the inside would never dry.

Our embroidered blankets are made with wool, and should be handwashed gently in cool water.

Goldwork embroidery should only be washed by a professional. Other embroidery is best cleaned as for temari (especially framed hoop work) though wearable accessories may be put through the wash on a gentle cycle or hand washed.

Fantastic! Thank you so much!


These handkerchiefs are incredible crafted! We wanted custom pet pocket squares for the groomsmen in our wedding. Jackie was fantastic & designed dogs, cats & even a guinea pig! Beyond that she helped designed a fern for a plant lover. We are already planning to come back & shop here more.
